Ms. Kieffer's book is the most concise and thoroughly documented indictment of President Obama yet written. Written in a straight forward and hard-hitting style, with occasional humor interspersed, this book is both enjoyable and thought provoking. I bought several additional copies to share with colleagues and family. I look forward to reading more of Katie's work!

I recommend Kieffer’s book because she offers a new way of approaching economic and cultural dilemmas. What sets her apart is that she’s a genuine straight shooter and offers humor, facts and resolutions. Yes, she calls out Obama and Hillary. She’s also fair. She isn’t shy about holding Republicans accountable for their missteps and ultimately demands reform from ALL politicians. I was very impressed by her copious research. She backs everything up with facts. One commenter says she doesn’t offer solutions. I can only assume that he/she didn’t read the book! In Ch. 3, she gives us multiple options for getting out of Obamacare after surveying hundreds of medical professionals. The chapter on the relationships (#6) is awesome—very fun to read—and she makes cases for state’s rights, courage and role models. The entire final chapter is also basically more solutions and motivation. After you read the book it’s obvious that the entire book is a “solution” in the sense that if independents and Republicans want to win elections and connect with millions of young swing voters, they should tell Millennials to get their hands on a book written by an energetic Millennial gal who speaks their language.

Kieffer did a fine job at writing this book. She definitely did her homework. She points out exactly how Obama targeted the millennials to win the election. From appearing on late night talk shows, MTV, etc. to hanging out with popular entertainers in order to become popular with the youth. She exposes the truth behind the Benghazi cover up, and exposes many other lies handed to us by our President. I could say so much more about this book, but I will say this....... Every American, especially the youth, should read this book to see how the President of our own country lied to all of us in order to get elected. Politicians lying is nothing new. The problem is, Obama knows many lives will suffer both physically & financially due to his choices. His choices are heading America away from Superpower status to way less then such. Probably the best thing I could say about this book is Kieffer had the guts to speak the truth. Bless her heart for that. If I could give this book ten stars I would. Kudos to her!

"Let Me Be Clear." Yes, Katie Kieffer has met this objective, from the first word to the last word. Just the facts. This book, "Let Me Be Clear," provides an enormous quantity of facts regarding President Obama and his promises. Liberty and freedom is gifted to all Americans by the Constitution, but only if we hold onto our republic, as cautioned by Benjamin Franklin. Katie Kieffer is clear as she explains how not only the Millennial generation, but all Americans are losing their birthright and this gift. I have been searching for just such a book and now I have found it. It is clear that Ms. Kieffer has spent significant time and research into preparing for her book. I need not repeat the book's topics and their content since that has been covered already by other reviewers. Note, however, that she has organized the facts into an easy to follow stream of promises made by Obama to all Americans. You can judge for yourself which promises have been kept and the consequences of the results. She emphasizes the significance of the broken promises and their consequences upon the Millennials, who are the next generation to complete their formal education and enter the workplace, or in too many instances, not be able to enter the workplace, certainly not a workplace they prepared for in school. Obama promised to transform America. That is one promise he has kept, except the transformation is not the one he alluded to. Ms. Kieffer follows that issue throughout her book, detailing what it means to all of us. Obama will not be running for the office of president again, but he has 2 1/2 years remaining in office and he surely will not disappear from public life thereafter. An informed public can help to make a positive difference to influence the outcome of those 2 1/2 years. Reading "Let Me Be Clear" will help to make it clear concerning promises made and promises not kept. Also, and just as important, Ms. Kieffer explains in detail how she prepared herself for life and the challenges she took on and how the people she met along the way influenced her in many positive ways. In a strong sense, the admonition of let me be clear also applies to Ms. Kieffer's zest for life, her striving, her beliefs and her accomplishments. This is a book for everyone to further sharpen their hearing and advance their insight into campaign speech chicanery. And any Millennial looking for ideas, or encouragement or inspiration will find it here.

Awesome title! This is a well-researched and scathing commentary on the disadvantageous situation in which President Obama has thrust the American millennial generation. Amidst this exposé of the Obama administration, the author offers solutions and an optimistic outlook for entrepreneurism.  A recommended read!

This book is particularly great for millennials because most of them, because of their age, are easily deceived by a political pro such as Barrack Obama. As a millennial herself, Katie Kieffer knows her generation well and it able to connect well with issues that are important to them. This book is tailored for them and helps give clarity to political deception. The book is very well researched, easy to read, and accurately portrays not just the deceptions of Barack Obama, but of many that would follow in his footsteps. There are far too many people today who see politics as a gold mine for themselves and from early on they structure their lives with the intention of mining that gold. Acting like they are doing if for others is just that: an act. This book will add insight and wisdom for any young voter.

"Let Me Be Clear: Barack Obama's War on Millennials, and One Woman's Case for Hope" by Katie Kieffer ... Katie Kieffer has authored an outstanding political resource book for Millennials to better understand the devastating effects of President Barack Obama's policies and the Democrat Party's politics on their generation. She provides a roadmap for Millennials to change and improve their lives despite all of these obstacles put in their way by Obama and his ilk. "Let Me Be Clear" is also an excellent source for those of the Baby Boomer and Generation X generations to better understand the trials and hurdles facing their children and grandchildren, and how to help them overcome and prevail in true American tradition. In addition, "Let Me Be Clear" serves an a useful resource book for the politically minded to discover how to better outreach to the Millennial Generation, and vice-versa. Katie details the Millennials' expertise and familiarity with modern technology and the best methods to engage this up and coming generation to embrace a political philosophy based on Americanism, optimism, self-reliance, and entrepreneurship. "Let Me Be Clear" is very well written; Katie's narrative is engaging, rational and her writing style draws the reader further into her book making it a real page turner as she clearly demonstrates the many cause and effect analyses of our current political dysfunction. The 2016 elections are now upon us ... read Katie's book as soon as possible and be prepared to restore America back to her Constitutional ideals. "Let Me Be Clea" offers readers a strategy for an American restoration back to the promise of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" through the framework our our envisioned Constitutional republic.

An eye-opening read. Katie's hard-hitting style cuts through the rhetoric and emotion and gets right to the heart of the matter with truth, doing it in an entertaining way. Her facts are thoroughly documented. Katie's outlook gives me real "Hope" for the future.

The Millennials are angry and rightfully so. But much of that anger is misdirected. Katie Keiffer's well researched book articulately and forcefully explains the misguided policies and programs set in motion by the Obama administration which violate basic economic principles, ignore human nature, create divisiveness and class warfare and which have created enormous unintended (HOPEFULLY unintended) consequences that, unless reversed, will do a tremendous amount of damage to your (and our nation's) future. If you're under 30 or 35 years old, please do yourself a favor and read this book by someone who can relate to your indignation. You will gain a better understanding of how and why you were swindled by a great salesman but the most unqualified man to ever occupy the oval office...and what you can do to help undo the damage and put the country on the right track again.

This book is well researched and moves fast from subject to subject. Katie lays out a very compelling argument, based on reason and facts, which supports the premises that the Millennial generation has been duped by the current administration. With witty and sharp prose Katie cuts to the core of what really went on in 2008/2012 leaving us tho with hope for the future.

True fact: 43 presidents before Obama had the US debt at $8 trillion. Obama? Made it climb to $24 trillion.

The author is blatantly biased against the president andthe Democrats. It shows on every page. Doesn't criticize any Republicans and starts the book by insulting Presidents Kennedy and Clinton. It could have beenwritten by any number of Obama haters. Reads like a Sean Hannity show. Ann Coulter clone.

This reads like a teenage rant  that throws everything but truth at Democrats. I agree this is a book with an agenda that we really don't need to waste our time reading
